The Devil in the White City is a shocking true story that intertwines the lives of two contrasting men, each of whom has left their very own mark on the world. Daniel H. Burnham was a hardworking architect who built the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893 and his story tells of his struggle to overcome many obstacles that kept him from completing the project. The other plot follows Henry H. Holmes, a serial killer pharmacist who uses the World’s Fair to build a hotel where he seduces, tortures, and mutilates young women.
This is positive news that the project is moving forward after being stuck in development hell for over a decade since Leonardo DiCaprio obtained the rights to the book in 2010. He originally planned to adapt the book into a feature film in which he would play Holmes and Martin Scorsese will direct, but in 2019 Hulu announced it would grow the project into a big-budget series.
DiCaprio and Scorsese will currently serve as executive producers on the project, along with Rick Yorn, Sam Shaw, Jennifer Davisson and Stacey Sher. Todd Field is set to direct the first two episodes of the limited series.
Many fans would love to see Reeves come to an agreement and star in this delightful mini-series because he is loved by audiences and for good reason too. Recently, it was reported that he donate 70 percent of Matrix wage for cancer research, further cementing his reputation as one of Hollywood’s all-around good guys.
